Setting sail from Dover

White Cliffs Country is a fascinating region, one packed with history and natural beauty. We think there is no sight like that of the stunning cliffs rising from the sea, topped by the fortifications of Dover Castle, and surrounded by lush green countryside. But the nearby area is also packed with charm, and not so further afield are captivating pretty villages, fascinating towns such as Sandwich (one of the original Cinque ports), and of course Kent's glory, Canterbury with its magnificent cathedral. A final thought must go to the many castles including Deal, Walmer and the magnificently photogenic Leeds Castle.

Our tip

You will be amazed how much there is to see and do, so drive down early, pick a base such as Canterbury to explore, and join your cruise completely relaxed.

Arriving in Monte Carlo

Renowned for its casino, its Grand Prix and its oligarch-friendly tax policies, Monte Carlo is glamour and hedonism personified, with a price tag to match. Wedged between Italy and France on the Côte d'Azur, this little principality enjoys a lovely setting, the villas and penthouses tumbling down the hillside towards the sweeping blue expanse of the Mediterranean. Most visitors won't feel the need (or be able to afford) to stay more than a day or two, but the Prince's Palace and the Oceanographic Museum are both well worth a visit. Enter the casino at your own risk...

Don't miss

Make sure you’re outside the Prince’s Palace by 11.55 am sharp for the daily Changing of the Guard ceremony; it’s a wonderful spectacle that always draws a crowd.

Crystal have repeatedly been voted the World’s Best cruise line, and Crystal Symphony is certainly a top level classic, not to be missed.

What we love

Crystal Symphony is not a new ship, but you wouldn't know it, since she is subject to an ongoing refurbishment programme, which ensures that the environment is always perfect and the style contemporary. This is, in short, a ship constantly honed to perfection. But ultimately it's all about the unmatchable food and service.

Tailor-make your trip

Ways to make it better
Walletts Court, Kent

Extend your stay in Kent

We love historic Walletts Court, just ten minutes outside Dover but feels like another world – cosy, welcoming, and great food too.

Seals on the beach in Kent

Our recommended private tour

An extraordinary trip up the coast by RIB to the mouth of the Stour River and the orange seals basking on the mudflats.

Hotel Monte-Carlo Bay, Monaco

Where to stay in Monte Carlo

We prefer the Monte-Carlo Bay to the city hotels, lovely sea views and next to the beach.

Driving a Ferrari in Monte Carlo

See Monte Carlo in style

If you like luxury or performance cars, rent one - a Ferrari or a Lamborghini - and drive along the Corniche.
